Synopsis

In 1980, Swedish tennis star Björn Borg was one of the most successful sportsmen in the world, having won Wimbledon four times in a row. Suave and sophisticated on and off the court, with an enormous fan base, he was undeniably the crowd favourite. Standing in the way of an unprecedented fifth title is pretender to the throne John McEnroe, a hot-headed maverick, infamous for his short fuse. All seems to hinge on the final the entire tennis world wants when the two men face each other. The match would become one of the all-time great sporting encounters. However, as this dramatization of the story makes clear, the two men had more in common than audiences realised.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
